We went there on the recommendation of hotel staff and were not disappointed. The fish moqueca was delicious, and the atmosphere quite nice.

Nothing special about this place... food is decent but just that. It is not inexpensive and the quality standard is average. Used to be just a bit better...

We ate a tasty fish moqueca with shrimp. Relatives who were with us and preferred to eat meat praised the parmegiana filet mignon. The fish baits served as starters are quite crispy.

This was recommended by hotel staff as the best restaurant in town so I went. I had the camarao no abacaxi (shrimp in a half pineapple shell) which was very good and the service was very attentive. Would come back. Enjoy.

As noted in the comments, very few waitstaff speak English but with some gestures and trust it all worked out fine. The crab appetizer was amazing. Definitely a must try.

The place is OK, the food is not that good. Lobster was too cooked and to close there was a bug in the middle of the food... Not a good experience at all.
